Wise Aging

  • Beth Meyer Synagogue 504 Newton Road Raleigh United States (map)

There is no set of instructions for getting older - for the shifts in our social and support networks, the feeling of invisibility, the angst of dealing with aging parents, the mixed signals of entering retirement, or the surprising turns in our relationships with ourselves, our partners, friends, and colleagues.

On the other hand, those currently in this stage can count themselves as part of an extraordinary, history-making generation - pioneers in understanding and making the most of this "third chapter" of life. Many who find themselves in this group will be blessed with unprecedented healthy years ahead, full of potential for learning and growth.

This 9-session experience, created by the Institute for Jewish Spirituality, is designed for those who are 55 and older and is aimed at giving Jewish adults a meaningful place to open up conversations about what it means to get older and to create new understandings about life so we can live with spirit, resilience and joy. Topics are explored using mindfulness and contemplative practices to deepen the inner and outer journeys of participants.

Cost: $150 ($180 for non Beth Meyer members)
